One hundred and sixty seven pages of attention getting color with information that my kids actually wanted to read!
I suggest you have your kids skip the forewords and begin at the Contents. Buy them a set of fine tip colored markers, a pack of sticky notes and a decent day planner as well.
When you give them the book make a big deal of it, say “I have bought you a special gift and I will present it to you soon.” Create mystery, intrigue, curiosity and anticipation. When you present it say, “This is the first gift for you. Tell me the moment you finish doing section one so I can give you your next gift”. Present the markers at that time and say, “This is just a small, although important, gift. Tell me when you finish doing section two, so that you can receive an even greater gift”. When they finish section two, give them the planner and sticky notes. Say “Your greatest gift of all is waiting for you to do section three”. When they finish section three ask, “What ideas are you using from the book?” These are the true gifts. One more gift is in section four, how to ace exams.
